Apparently the United Kingdom is having an election today. Monarchy ain’t what it used to be. Polls close at 10pm local, which is 5pm Eastern. Here’s the Guardian; here’s the BBC. Let this serve as an open thread.
THRILLING UPDATE (djw):
Exit polls not looking good for May:
An exit poll projects that Prime Minister Theresa May’s Conservative Party will win the biggest share of seats in Britain’s election but could fall short of a majority in Parliament.
The survey predicts the Conservatives will get 314 seats and the Labour Party 266.
It projects 34 for the Scottish National Party and 14 for the Liberal Democrats.
If this holds up, is there any precedent in the history of politics for a major political party committing two blunders as epic as Cameron’s referendum and May’s snap election in such rapid succession?
